Component Date of Report Summary
Electrical System 24 August 2014 I was driving down the road and turning into king soopers shopping mart when my car just died. i thought it was the battery and coasted into a parking spot. i then checked my stereo and interior and exterior lights to see if it was the battery. it wasn't, they all worked fine. but turning the ignition to start the car did nothing. it seemed the steering wheel was locked. after playing with the steering wheel for a few minutes it unlocked itself and i was able to drive again. i continued to the grocery store but before i got there it did the same thing again. i drifted into a parking spot again and this time it was dead for good. i had to get my car towed to a mercedes repair shop (salims silver star). my mechanic said it was the ignition switch and a known issue with mercedes. after $1700 on a car with less than 50,000 it is finally fixed. my life was in danger driving a car known to have ignition switch issues. this is criminal and i'm lucky the problem occurred while in a parking lot and not on the highway doing 65. please recall this issue as mercedes is making a fortune off of it's customers charging $1700 for an issue they caused !!!
